How many Georgians actually in Georgia?

Georgia's Population 4.469 million – Geostat

Most Georgians I have known in the last 15 years insist there are only 3.5 million Georgians now in Georgia. They are now living in a self-imposed diaspora because of lack of opportunities at home. So who are counted as Georgians now. Armenians, Azeris and Turks that vacation here or do business, those belonging to international organizations, or those spending good times on the seaside, whooping it up in Turkish whorehouses. Even those that came back after the 2003 Rose Revolution, out of hope of better times with a reform minded president left again, as they soon realized that nothing had really changed.
Georgia's Population 4.469 million – Geostat

Georgia’s population increased by 0.7% in a year period and stands at 4,469,200 as of January 2011, not counting residents of breakaway Abkhazia and South Ossetia, according to figures released by the state statistics agency, Geostat, on June 30.
Why not? We demand that these Georgian territories be included in the official population figures.
You mean it is not true what is hyped by Georgian PR firms during CNN commercial breaks now [EYE ON GEORGIA WEEK, 8:30pm to 9pm], that Batumi is the place of choice for Europeans high slumming it for the summer, like in Nice and Montpellier or Ibiza or Samnos, the Greek island?  What could be more naturalistic and enticing than a Batumi disco and its world class band, with its loose and cheerful girls, Georgians and other former CIS working girls deported back from Turkey and the Middle East? Just be safe, and HIV is soon predicted to be on the level of Russian and the Ukraine.
